Get real criminals and mental cases will always have a gun or some other weapon, people need guns for home protection to protect themselves and their families. This combat veteran says no to guncontrol.

When you get to the root of this, the violence starts in the schools, that's why it ends up in the schools. It starts with bullying by teachers with paddles and kids with attitudes and agenda,, pushing, shoving, name-calling, and punching, and escalates through the grades, and finally ends up with some victim who has suppresed it through the years realizing that guns make a damn good equalizer. Get it right... STOP the BULLYING and you will STOP the SHOOTINGS! Yeah, look at the mental...

Yeah, look at the mental health, look at how many people in tratment have been bullied and shoved around while some idiot teachers and principles looked the other way. WAKE UP PEOPLE! STOP BLAMING THE GUNS!

The problem is, Obama offered no "common sense solutions" to any problem currently facing society, and everything he has done in the name of solving problems has only made them worse, as would be the case were he to get his way with this issue. It would take nothing short of a civil war to accomplish what the usurpers and the oligarchs are gunning for, pun very much intentional. How many lives would be lost as a result of that aggression on behalf of the state with innocent civilians the victims?

Oh, but that kind of killing is okay, because those are people who don't agree with the sinister left.

The above petition is AWFULLY VAGUE... Typically, that's a tactic used by the usurpers and oligarchs to publicly express support for a cause they know literally nothing about.

Let's see the specifics first. Until I know exactly what is meant by all the vague platitudes appearing instead of specific ideas/proposals, I won't be signing.

I would strongly encourage anyone who has signed to either explain what it is they signed on to, or reconsider agreeing to something which is deliberately...

Newtown Teacher Admonishes Florida Atlantic University to take action for Truth on behalf of victims and their families:

Newtown Teacher Admonishes Florida Atlantic University to take action for Truth on behalf of victims and their families:

SECOND LETTER TO FAU PRESIDENT.
Dear Dr. Saunders:
Your timely response to my original letter is appreciated. Out of respect for your accomplished position and the institution you serve, I wish for my words to be a beacon of practical constructive truth.
Though the “professor” in question expressed his opinion outside of his employ, he was able to achieve a national profile under the auspices of Florida Atlantic University. Using his position at FAU in concert with the tragedy in Newtown, he was able to catapult himself onto the world stage. He did so in the most irresponsible way imaginable! He did so by violating two principles of employability associated with competency and ethics.
With respect to competency, is clear to any reasonable person that James Tracy acted out of the bounds of basic “scholarship”. Indeed, his expressions reflected delusional thinking in a manner similar to a person splattering paint across a sacred public monument and calling it art. The opinion he expressed delved into the bowels of twisted thinking, absent the facts necessary for intellectual honesty or rationality. It is not hyperbolic to state that his reflections exemplified intellectual terrorism without regard for truth or the edification of knowledge. The exact opposite of a mission to “educate”.
With respect to ethics, may I refer to the “Hippocratic Oath” as guiding principle for those who heal? Please pardon the generalization of that to any profession that serves people. The essential question is whether the action is constructive or destructive. It matters not whether the action is within or outside the boundaries of a “punch clock”. Clearly, the “professor” used his position at Florida Atlantic University for his own gain by desecrating the grief of loving parents. This he did over the loss of their precious children at the peak of their innocence and adorability. The professor abused the power of his intellect in the same way a physician would face the ultimate consequence for injecting poison into the veins of his patient and referring to it as “practice of medicine”. The professor’s “intellectual exercise” was a disgusting intermingling maze of imaginative thinking and narcissistic attention seeking.
Now Dr. Saunders, please refrain from the FAU “boiler plate” expression of grief amidst an implication that “media stories” are the responsible party that “added to the pain felt by the victims’ families”. The responsibility now rests with you to remedy this unfortunately situation. It is still not too late for you to do so as the public outcry of decent people multiplies exponentially on behalf of the victims of this horrific ordeal. You are uniquely positioned to bring right upon a wrong and you must do so in a way that is satisfactory to the most average among us. Nothing less than the reputation and viability of Florida Atlantic University is at stake here. Hence this letter is shared with many in the public domain with the power with that to be the case.
Sincerely yours,
Donald H. Ramsey, Citizen and Newtown Educator.
Newtown, Connecticut

RESPONSE FROM FAU PRESIDENT.
Hi Don,
Thank you for your email. I want to make it clear that those views and opinions are not shared by Florida Atlantic University, and I am personally saddened by any media stories that have added to the pain felt by the victims' families.
FAU joins the entire nation and people around the world in feeling profound grief for the lives lost on that awful day. Our hearts break for the victims, their loved ones and friends, and all the people of Newtown. The world lost innocent children and brave adults whose lives were dedicated to education. In the aftermath of this terrible tragedy, we learned of the tremendous heroism of the Sandy Hook teachers and administrators. We admire their courage in the face of unspeakable horror and we honor their memory.
Mary Jane Saunders, Ph.D.
President

FIRST LETTER TO FAU PROVOST FOR PERSONNEL.
Dear Dr Alperin,
Undoubtedly you have received feedback regarding James Tracy. I am a Newtown, CT Teacher with deep personal connections to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting!

The reputation of your university is now subject to examination on a level comparable to Penn State after the Jerry Sandosky cover up!

A massive boycott is eminent if action against this destructive "professor" is not forthcoming.

My question for you is: Are you doing the right thing?

Sincerely,

Don Ramsey.

Yes we do have shootings and killings in the UK but apart from the Dunblane masacre we do not have large shooting tragedies. Many shootings in schools and colleges has been repeated in the USA since the Sandy Hook that does not make international news. All the mor for them to make sure that guns are not sold to every one without proper screening especially if their is a lerge mental health problem.

I won't be signing this petition either as He got those weapons Illegally and the only thing stiffer gun laws will do is keep the guns out of law abiding citizens hands and will NOT stop this from happening again. My prayers are with the community that had such a tragedy.
